CEO Interview: Glenn Henry, founder of VIA processor subsidiary Centaur:: Here is an interview for those interested in the types of robots that are most likely to be seen in your home within the next few years. Making a cheap x86 processor, with low power and a small footprint, is ideal for mobile robots. Also, combined with Linux, you can easily make some very cheap off-the-shelf robots.

Too bad vision is perhaps the single most processor intensive method of perception, yet probably the most important step to getting a general purpose robot.

By the way, I’d be interested in taking a quick survey: what would you most like a domestic robot to be capable of within the next few years? Possible categories include entertainment, communication, security, clearing etc., but you can be as specific as you like.
